    How can I open an XLSM file (not XLSX) on my Mac? I'm running OSX 10.4.10 and have Numbers, Office '04 and the Microsoft Beta converter thingy installed, and nothing will open this file.

    Cheers :)

    You may try NeoOffice. It will open Excel 2007 files. However, I don't know if it will open macro-enabled files. Download it and try. If NeoOffice can't do the trick, then your only other option is to buy Office 2008.

    Use Preview

    • Use the latest version of Preview to open it.
    • Select all the text in the file by clicking and dragging your mouse over it.
    • Copy the text (CMD+C)
    • Paste it in your favorite spreadsheet editor. Most formatting preserved for me to Google docs.

    Hope this helps
